    Failed to fetch libre office from ubuntu software center

    Ello all. I finished installing xubuntu in vmplayer and now i am testing it out by installing some basic software. So far i have run into this issue twice. Once with libreoffice and the other with sweet home 3d.

    With libre office it will get about half way and then throw an error message saying:

    Failed to download package files
    Check your internet connection.

    Under the details tab:
    Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po....04.1_i386.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.13 80]
    Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po....04.1_i386.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.13 80]

    Same with sweethome 3d from software center.

    Internet works or i wouldnt be able to post this forum thread haha.

    Was Xubuntu released with wrong repos in it?

    thanks

    Re: Failed to fetch libre office from ubuntu software center

    You've installed, but have you run a system update yet?
    Open the Update Manager, or what ever it's called on Xubuntu, and install the updates.

    Then try to install those packages.
    A normal behavior when things don't install is to check that the system is up-to-date.

    See if that helps.

    I am not finding any .deb file.

    Did you install from the software center?

    Your system is telling you the truth.
    Code:
    $ rmadison -u ubuntu openjdk-7-jre-headless
    [...]
     openjdk-7-jre-headless | 7u71-2.5.3-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 | precise-security/universe | amd64, armel, armhf, i386, powerpc
    [...]
    You are trying to download 7u71-2.5.3-0ubuntu0.14.04.1, while the Ubuntu repos have 7u71-2.5.3-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 (which is indeed appropriate for a 12.04 system)

    Try the following command to find out where that request is coming from. Please post the entire output here.
    Code:
    apt-cache policy openjdk-7-jre-headless

    I am trying this from the software center. i have not added any repos or anything of the sorts.

    it just starts to download and then says failed. haha.

    I have not installed libreoffice or sweethome 3d yet because it wont let me. this is a new install of xubuntu 14.04 not 12.04

    Post the output of
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    use code tags, please.

    Then re-run the
    apt-cache policy openjdk-7-jre-headless command
    Post that as well.


    Ignore the second command for now, and only post the output for the first.

    You posted again before I posted, just barely.

    it looks normal. i checked software updater and even though it failed last time, the amount of MB in size for download size has dropped from 204MB to 48MB. Now when i hit update, it says failed cant fetch. So it seems its either the repo for the firefox or the base. haha
